Harness your inner socialite

Your clothes may never look as cute and your life is certainly nowhere near as dramatic, but that doesn't mean you can't toast to your favorite Upper East Siders. Sip on these martinis while you conjure up your latest scheme against your best friend.

Gossip Girl cocktails

These cocktails are inspired by New York's favorite and most posh families. They rarely partake in any activity without a cocktail, so why not join them? Sip these in good company, but watch what you say because you never know who might be listening.

Gossip Girl airs Monday evenings at 8/7 central on the CW network.

Upper East Side

The Manhattan may be a classic, but that doesn't mean it knows how to dress. Consider this -- its cuter and much classier cousin. This is both Waldorf and Van Der Woodsen approved.

Ingredients:

  • 2 parts whiskey
  • 2 parts Crisp White Cascal
  • 1 part Champagne
  • 1 part simple syrup
  • Blueberries for garnish

Directions:

  1. Add the ingredients to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled martini glass.

The Empire

Bass isn't just a name -- it is a state of mind. It's bold, powerful and arrogant with a secret sensitive side. A Bass always looks professional but is always ready for a scheme any time of the day. Cheers to ruling the world (or at least New York City's ritzy business scene).

Ingredients:

  • 2 parts scotch
  • 2 parts orange juice
  • 1 part triple sec
  • 1 part orange bitters

Directions:

  1. Add the ingredients to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled rocks glass.

Lonely Boy

Don't think we'd leave the good guy out of this. If you relate to spending hours on end in a coffee shop writing novels about unrequited love, this cocktail is for you. Just be happy you were accepted into the group despite your financial flaws.
